Fuck this guy

quote [ 13 Senate Dems are calling for the FCC Inspector General to open an investigation into potential quid pro quo between FCC chair Ajit Pai the Trump administration and Sinclair broadcasting. ]

That's a lot of meetings, and sources.

Broadcom Explores Deal to Buy Chipmaker Qualcomm

quote [ Broadcom Ltd. is considering a bid of more than $100 billion for Qualcomm Inc., according to people familiar with the matter, in what would be the biggest-ever takeover of a chipmaker. ]

Wasn't Broadcom on corporate skid-row not too long ago? 70 bucks a share and stock is what the offer looks like it amounting to. QCOM shares went up the most in years due to this news, as it could pretty much make the whole Apple lawsuit war go away if it is done right.

Due to annoying auto-play, full text in extended.

The U.S. Isn?t Prepared for the Next Recession

quote [ Millions of people remain in perilous financial shape, with little to buffer them in the event of a layoff. Roughly half of respondents to a Federal Reserve survey conducted in 2015 said that they could not come up with $400 in an emergency, with a third saying they could not cover three months of expenses, even if they sold assets, dipped into retirement ]

Interesting read - I'm looking at the huge bubble of a DOW right now, and have been shifting some assets around. Looks like subprimes are a big thing again as well, with quicken the biggest provider of them all currently. They try to claim they are not a subprime lender, but do a search on "quicken rocket mortgage."

Sad that people completely seem to have forgotten about 2006-2008 all of a sudden.

Puerto Rico?s utility cancels controversial contract with Montana firm to repair electric grid

quote [ The move came after Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said the contract was a distraction and should be canceled after critics in the electric power industry, Congress and the Federal Emergency Management Agency raised questions about whether the company, Whitefish Energy, was well equipped to respond to the hurricane damage.

About 80 percent of the people living on the commonwealth?s main island still have no electricity. ]

Still can't believe that delusional Zinke thought this bullshit would fly.

I started collecting ER bills. The American Hospital Association started warning its members.

quote [ These prices are often kept secret.

Hospitals typically keep their prices private. One study found it was significantly easier to get information from hospitals about how much their parking costs then track down the price of a common medical procedure. When I have tried to conduct interviews with hospital executives about how they set their prices, I find that many are reluctant to comment.

That?s why we launched our project to collect emergency medical bills ? to bring more transparency to prices that are typically opaque (and often set very high). ]

Pretty cool study - link to study upload in extended.

This Company Added the Word ?Blockchain? to Its Name and Saw Its Shares Surge 394%

quote [ A British company that has been investing in internet and information businesses is having its best day on record.

On-line Plc jumped as much as 394 percent on Friday after announcing plans to change its name to On-line Blockchain Plc, following an initial climb of 19 percent on Thursday when it first announced the news. It?s the biggest one-day gain for the small-cap company since its December 1996 listing. The trading volume that reached 2.9 million shares by early afternoon in London is equal to more than 16 times the entire year?s trading before the last two days. ]

Investors want some of that sweet, sweet blockchain action.
